Hi! I must thank you a lot! This is the worst Talbet I have ever buyed.

Full of lags, doesn't work well...hangs up.

I've buyed 5 for my friends and 3 comes back. A waste of money.

Now I will try to install this version, in hope it will work better.

Thank you again.

Have a nice day.

Ok, Flashed.

I've encountered three hangs up while doing first configuration.

Seems solved with an reboot immediatly after the first configuration.

Some small lags while installing APK (the timing between finished download and beginning of installation). I think it is due some wifi lacks.

However, now the tablet works as fast as the Ainol Hero 1...at least seem a true Dual core :angel:

Keep working hard!

Thank you a lot!

I have installed it on my ainol 10 hero II (quad core) and its works great....BUT to make it work is needed to flash the following stock official rom for the kernel modules:

http://www.slatedroid.com/topic/52722-ainol-actions-7029-roms/

(specifically the 04.01.2014 rom)

After flashing that (with the Actions Pad Tool) i followed iBullRay indications (also flashing unofficial gaps) and worked great. Maybe he forgot that detail.

I suppose that for others devices may work as well with those updated roms.

Before doing the thing with the official rom, i had a screen problem, it seemed with more resolution than supported and the image was all confused and the device was in a boot loop sometimes.

Now for the last 5 days i found 0 problems, it runs really well and fast (better than others roms), but i do notice a little more battery drain

I hope I have helped someone.

PD: Excuse my english

Hello, this is my first post here.

I have same device as Firomi(quadra7), and latest sharkdroid works for me fine.

BUT i have weird issue with wallpapers - system, let's say, uses portrait setting for landscape(so image is cut and resized to width) and landscape setting for portrait(so image is cut and pixelated).

I have no idea, where to search for solution, if it's matter of systemui, or something in misc, or matter of base used, can someone speculate how to fix it?

This is a good ROM. I am using Venus. However, I noticed that the latest versions of SA won't allow me to use VPN. I can connect to the VPN but there's no data. Is there any way to fix it? It's the same thing with Firomi's ROM. As I recall, I successfully used VPN before on Android 4.3 of SA.

So, it seems, that shark 5.0 is close;

Since kitkat shark stumped into lack of kernel(chinese brands WILL not provide sources;/), author(s) made a good decision and another 4.2.x build is near :D

Look - i am using shark in newest available version now, i made heavy modifications of that version for personal use and let me conclude - there's NO need to have anything more, imho. Not for that machine, that is.

Nice 4.3 would be fine(especially slimbean, aokp), since SYSTEM is faster than 4.2.x'es, BUT without proper HW it IS in fact, slower than 4.2.x with our weird tablets..

So, new 4.2.x would be enough.

SharkAndroid 5.0 based on Android 4.2.2 will come soon.
Ainol developers do not respond to queries about the source code of the new kernel.Kit-Kat on devices based on Actions ATM7029 processor will not!

Yeah, i know;

i am tracking this site:

http://vk.com/sharkandroid_project

and of course 4pda.ru too(ainol section) :)

Latest sharkdroid works fine, next version would be nice...i wonder what changelog is... shark 4.35 after tweaking/modding is ultimate solution for my venus-clone(i.e. 7 HRS vid playback without using cpu, lol).

Holy da.mn, i managed to get 15468 pts in antutu with my pentagram quadra7 after additional tweaking of ported 4.35+irbis gpu oc..i REALLY wait for new version of 4.2.2 Shark...

W"hats weird with atm7029 machine(or rather its kernel, imho) - overclocking cpu = loss of reallife power(weird)+battery drain(whats obvious), also - quad core is flawed with that kind of machine, 4 cores ON are ALWAYS less productive, than properly 2cores set-up.. SO, do NOT overclock cpu and turn off 2 usless cores after boot, always. LMK+VM scripts are mandatory with atm7029, too...

init scripts:

1.VM

#!/system/bin/sh

#chmod -R 755 /system/etc/init.d

Yup, i know - not perfected yet, doubled data here and there(for A REASON), but, i assure you - it WORKS.

There's much more than this(especially proper sqlite lib+script), but overall: init.d scripts can change dynamics of our machines positively, and tbh, any other android machine, imho(1.5 yr of testing here, and there, y'know...).

upd: i forgot: do NOT use ready-made-sets of tweaks from xdadev, ever. To get in control you need consciously make your own set...premade sets are rarely useful when machine is off the main grid, you know..

Thank you for your attention, have a nice day/night....

Hm, i am confused there - so are they making new version of sharkdroid based on 4.2.2 as they said, or they are skipping new 4.2.2 for cm11/4.4.x now? New 4.2.x was supposed to be released before february...i REALLY DO NOT need flawed 4.4.x/cm11 rom tbh....

Anyone knows something?

btw,

are kernel sources for 4.2.x available somewhere? tbh i wondering about tweaking it and maybe adding some governors/i/o's + some other things if it's possible...

one more thing - check this:

http://pan.baidu.com/share/home?uk=1009951537&third=0#category/type=0

i can see NEW 7029 rom there(2015!) - maybe some libs/files could be used to mod actual shark, OR even - maybe these are >4.2.x roms? i cannot check 'em - my goddamn internet diconnects hourly(512kbps;/), so i cannot download to check... maybe there are newer gfx libs in them, you know..

About SharkAndroid can not say anything(No time for developing), may be by the end of this week i will lay CyanogenMod 11.

Oh, hello, Sir, good to hear that.

btw, tell me one thing - i ported almost all roms made for 7029 to my device(firomi has same machine - quadra7).

ALL >4.2.x roms are slower than firomi''s and sharkdroid - i checked PA, cm10.1, cm10.2, aokp and what else..

What makes me wondering - 4.3 roms should be faster, but they are not. 2D is VERY laggy everywhere(gui, games, whatever).

Do you have any idea why?

I am unable to figure out why, massive tweaking is not helping in that cases at all, weird, these roms are really slow...

p.s. anyone downloaded and unpacked these new roms from baidu? is there something we can rip and use?

btw,iBullRay are you Yarik Poberezhny from vk sharkdroid?

Because SharkAndroid and firomi roms used new,optimized kernel and drivers.

I can download.
Yes.
